How do you rotate pictures?  When I added my photos, to my ads, the picture
was "upright"  When I view my ad, the pictures are all rotated to the right.  How
do I get them upright?

Have seen this before. I edit the pics using an image editor such as photoscape (a free one) and saved them again. Then uploaded them to AM, problem solved.

Not sure what you mean by "pictures file" but if you mean you did so while viewing them on your computer that wont work. You actually have to open them for editing then save them (even if they show up correctly in your editor)

No.....you should only have to load them into an editor....if they show correctly then simply save it as if you did make changes. If they dont show correctly then adjust as needed and then save.

Its a weird issue that pops up with photos sometimes for some reason.....Have seen it several times myself and simply loading them into an editor and saving them again even if they load oriented correctly seems to cure the issue.....I read about the cause but dont recall enough about it to explain other than it is something about the hidden metadata? in photos not getting saved correctly.
